Certified Full Wigs and Volumizing Systems
There are so many wigs and hair systems to chose from on the market how do you know which one is right for you? Firstly, if you are considering having a bespoke wig made you should take into consideration that the company you are using is a certified Wig Maker.
Authentic Locks are specialists, and certified in Wig Making and can create many different styles of wigs such as a Full Lace Wig, Front Lace Wig, custom bespoke made wig, wavy or curly wigs, even high-lighted wigs.
To create and complete our bespoke Wigs, as an example, we hand craft and knot 70,000 individual hairs. – Craftsmanship! It takes an enormous amount of intricate skill, technique, know-how and patients to complete. In the UK alone statistics show that over 70% of people are unhappy with their natural hair quality or hair quantity and therefore require our bespoke made to measure wigs.
To compliment our Wig Making Service we offer a Wig Repair Service where we mend all types of wigs, from re knotting due to shedding to adding additional colour with a few highlights. We specialize in wig making for the modern woman and for people who have suffered from hair loss due to alopecia, cancer treatments and other medical conditions. We are able to cater to all ethnic backgrounds together with diverse styles and textures.
We also have celebrity wigs that you would see Beyonce, Tyra Banks and even Jessica Simpson wearing!

– This hair has not been colour processed and as it is in a virgin state, it holds its colour perfectly. It is straight and soft. This hair is the purest but most expensive.
– this hair is as European Hair but is just fractionally coarser than European.
– this hair is the same diameter hair as Asian non-Processed hair but as the hair is coloured, it is just slightly more porous. This hair is the most widely used in all our systems and has the most wonderful texture together with excellent condition. Perfect for Caucasian hair.
– this is slightly coarser than Asian hair and is most commonly used for people with thick hair and for Afro – Caribbean hair. This hair will normally have a Yaki texture (similar to the texture of relaxed hair) which makes it ideal for Afro/Caribbean clients.
All of our hair is Remy aligned. This means that the cuticles on the hair surface are aligned leading to a more natural flow and less tangling.

Caring for my
Authentic Locks Wig
1) Place your wig into bowl of warm water.
2) Add 2 tea spoons of Authentic Locks Moisturising Shampoo.
3) Gently massage hair and rinse in fresh warm water.
4) Pat hair and add a little Authentic Locks Moisturising Conditioner and comb through and rinse.
Caring for my Human Hair wig
After following the wash instructions as above it is very important to hold with one hand the root hair together with the wig base and then with the other hand gently brush the hair starting from the ends going up to the roots. Brush very gently at the area of the root and the wig base. It is recommended to have two or three wigs a year so that you can interchange them.
Can I use styling products with my new wig?
You can use styling products such as mousse, serum, sparkle and shine and light hairsprays. Make sure you read the instructions on the Authentic Locks products.
Styling My Authentic Locks Wig
Use a wire brush, or your fingertips. Whilst your wig has been designed with a basic style, you can achieve many variations of styles, by gently lifting or gentle back combing. To regain the original style just brush thoroughly and when cleaning allow to air dry.
Brush Synthetic fibre Wigs ONLY when dry.
Use products specifically designed for wigs. For example the Authentic Locks range of hair care product. These are unique as they can be used on synthetic fibre and human hair.
What is the difference between Synthetic Fibre Hair and Human Hair?
Synthetic fibre is pre styled and therefore easy to maintain and much cheaper than Human hair wigs. However Human hair wigs need styling but are more natural and will last much longer and can be coloured to some degree.
How long does a synthetic fibre wig last?
You will get up to 12 weeks wear from your wig, if you are a daily wearer, after which it may start to go dry on the ends and loses it’s shine, where as a human hair wig can last 18 months.
The monofilament in the wig is the cap within the wig. This has a special construction which gives great comfort and wearability. As shown in the diagram, the construction is very comfortable because of the weaving technique, which provides excellent ventilation. And will match your own individual scalp colour.
What makes some wigs more expensive than others?
The price of a wig depends on the materials used in the construction of the wig. Synthetic wigs are generally much cheaper than Human hair, and a more durable lightweight wig will raise the price. The expertise of the wigmaker and the beauty and quality of the eventual product will also determine the price, as will the method used in its construction, with a hand-knotted wig being more expensive.
Can Authentic Locks colour match?
Yes, all you have to do is send us a sample of your hair and we will be more than happy to colour match it to your exact specifications.

No, Authentic Locks does not print a catalogue. New products are added to the site frequently, so you need to visit the website regularly to keep up-dated with all the latest wigs, Hair extensions and non surgical hair replacement & accessories.
